This five year contract encompasses technical and engineering support, field service, repair of spares and major overhaul of Chevron’s varied fleet of eleven Rolls-Royce gas generators.

“Chevron has a substantial fleet of Rolls-Royce gas generators requiring comprehensive support, both in the field and from our dedicated workshops,” said Mark Forsyth, industrial and marine business director of RWG.

“We’ve worked closely with our customer to overcome specific maintenance challenges posed by the local operating environment, so are well positioned to deliver a high level of equipment reliability throughout the term of this new contract.”
